Darrell Eugene Cowen, 67, of Brady, passed away early on Thursday, June 10, 2021. Darrell was born on Oct. 3, 1953, to Louis and Grace Cowen in Brawley, Calif. He graduated from Corona High School in 1971. While Darrell was known to have done many things in his life, bull riding, bareback bronc riding and rodeo clowning was on his list of favorites. His jobs included 18 plus years working for McCulloch County as a county employee and 15 plus years for Walmart. Other jobs included driving trucks and working as a farm and ranch hand, along with many other jobs. Darrell’s one true passion lay around traditional country music and on any given day, in any given moment he would be listening to or humming and singing whatever song that was fitting to the mood. It can be said that Darrell was most known for the time and dedication he volunteered to the Heart of Texas Country Museum and its foundation. From the beginning, Darrell could be found helping the front desk and giving countless tours of the treasures found there that he could share that love. Darrell is survived by his wife, Renae; sons, Mark Cowen and wife, Monica, John Cowen and wife, Judy, and Luke Cowen; daughter, Rebecca Clinard and husband, Robert; two grandsons, Micah and Marcus Cowen; one granddaughter, Makena Clinard; one sister, Alice Morris; 11 stepchildren, 13 step grandchildren, three step great-grandchildren and numerous nieces, nephews and friends. He is preceded in death by his parents, Louis and Grace Cowen; three brothers, Tex, Glendon and Aaron; one sister, Delia Hooper; and granddaughter, Elizabeth Grace Cowen. Visitation will be held at Heritage Funeral Home located at 300 N. Bridge St. in Brady, on Wednesday, June 16, from 6-8 p.m. Funeral service will be held at Heritage Funeral Home on Thursday, June 17, at 10 a.m. with burial to follow at the Melvin Cemetery in Melvin.
